Screening tests for bladder cancer

Posted on March 5th, 2012 No Comments

Bladder cancer is the fifth most common cancer that women and men are diagnosed with. Each year, there are 71,000 new cases and 14,000 deaths.

Risk factors for bladder cancer include occupational exposure, smoking and being exposed to certain infections from parasites and having a family history of bladder cancer. Also, men have higher diagnosed rate as well as older people and Caucasian people.

The most common symptom of bladder cancer is having blood in your urine because 8 of 10 people who have this type of cancer will experience this. Screening tests are used to test the condition including urinalysis, checking for tumor cells in the urine, and also checking the urine for other biomarkers.

Recently, the use of Actos, a popular type 2 diabetes medication has been linked to an increased risk of bladder cancer. If this has happened to you or a family member, contact the Actos bladder cancer lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-641-9810.
